Uncover Victoria, the pretty capital of British Columbia that is perched on the southern edge of Vancouver Island, in western Canada. Thanks to its British colonial heritage, Victorian architecture punctuates the cityscape, especially highlighted by the Craigdarroch Castle, the cluster of Parliament buildings, and the mighty Empress Hotel. Apart from centuries-old landmark sites, Victoria is home to Canada’s narrowest street located in Canada’s oldest Chinatown. Colorful pickle boats ferry passengers across the backwaters, while buskers and vendors entertain at the atmospheric Inner Harbour and the Fisherman’s Wharf. Between craft beers and neighboring Cowichan Valley wines, indulge in Victoria’s lively dining scene with Pacific coastal cuisine. A playground for adventure and outdoor enthusiasts, Victoria’s urban sprawl boasts acres of manicured parks and lush botanical gardens with hundreds of trails where deer wander about. Apart from hiking and cycling under forest canopies and on rugged shores, there’s kayaking, fishing, diving, and whale watching in the waters around. With pleasant weather year-round, Victoria hosts several events and festivals.

Highlights

  • Inner Harbour
  • Beacon Hill Park
